We launched Episodic, our new conference about episodic series across all platforms, just a few weeks ago, and the Early Bird tickets have already sold out! We’ve had fantastic feedback from you all on Twitter and email, so it really feels like Episodic is a timely and useful event. Standard tickets are now on sale, so get yours now before they sell out!

When we were developing Episodic, we wanted to really stretch the definition of episodic content in as many directions as we could. One of the first projects we had on our wish list was the excellent Zombies, Run! an ultra-immersive running game and audio adventure for iPhone and Android, created by Six to Start and award-winning novelist Naomi Alderman. The game has almost 3 million players worldwide, with over 200 missions across 5 seasons of episodic content.

Zombies, Run! is a fantastic example of how episodic serial formats can work across platforms and genres, and we’re really pleased to have co-creator Adrian Hon and writer Rebecca Levene at Episodic to tell us their story.

We’ll be announcing more speakers over the next couple of weeks, so if you want to come along and learn about how to use episodic series to tell your stories (and crucially, make money doing it) then get your tickets now.

If you want to be the first to hear about new speakers and other Storythings event (as well as getting 10 inspiring stories from around the web every Friday) then sign up to our newsletter now.
